Pieces Of Information Prior To Playing

Sincerely, one of the reasons we love these kinds of drinking games (counting the Bachelorette drinking game) is the simple setup & minimalist supplies. 

Straightforward, here’s what you need to play the DWTS drinking game:

  • Dancing With The Stars. Yes, you’ll need one of the seasons in order to play this drinking game. Preferably, save the rules till the new season starts. 
  • At least one other person to play with. Well yeah, this could be a single-player game, but, it’s always more fun if other people are included—the more the merrier.
  • Drinks for everyone. Sure, it’s up to you what you want to drink. If anyone under 21 asks to play, they might drink water instead! 

Get your drinks & be ready to black out considering the chaos this show brings!
